Yesterday we talked about phobias and the meaning of the word, acrophobia. If you missed it, you can find it right here. As promised, I wanted to present a few other words illustrating other phobias. Some are strange and some might be common. But these are pretty interesting!
Artist Mickey Bach also has a lot of wonderful and funny drawings showing some different phobias. Take a look at them below. His collection of Word a Day was popular in the 1940s. You can see a collection of them on this website.
